Stove | Range Clearances

Kitchen Stove, or Range, Clearances illustrate the minimum safe and efficient measurements for a functional range center.

Concerned primarily with the space in front of the stove, a minimum ‘Work Zone’ of 40” (102 cm) should be provided to accommodate the human body and the various movements and motions associated with cooking. It is recommended that the minimum clearance distance between kitchen appliances be set between 48”-60” (122-152 cm) to permit comfortable circulation between multiple work surfaces and appliances in the kitchen at the same time. Above the cooktop surface, the ventilation hood should be placed a minimum of 24” (61 cm) from the stove and selected with a maximum depth of 18” (46 cm) to allow a person to cook without accidentally hitting their head on the hood.

How much space should be provided in front of a kitchen stove?
A minimum clearance ‘work zone’ of 40” (102 cm) should be provided in front of a kitchen stove, with a larger 48”-60” (122-152 cm) clearance provided between other kitchen appliances.
How much space should be provided above the cooking surface of a kitchen stove?
A minimum clearance of 24” (61 cm) should be provided between the cooktop surface of a stove and the ventilation hood above.

What size ventilation hood should be used above a standard kitchen stove?
Ventilation hoods should have a maximum depth of 18” (46 cm) and positioned a minimum of 24” (61 cm) above the cooking surface of a stove to provide enough space for a person to cook efficiently without bumping their head.

Stoves, often referred interchangeably as ranges, are common kitchen appliances consisting of an oven and cooktop used for cooking food. Kitchen ranges today are available as either natural gas or electric powered appliances, and are designed as either freestanding, slide-in, or drop-in units.
